The video, which Vanity Fair said was meant to be humorous, became the subject of backlash online, primarily from liberals on social media.
 
A Vanity Fair spokeswoman apologized on behalf of the magazine and expressed regret for the skit shortly after.
 
"It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark,” said Beth Kseniak on Wednesday.
 
Lahren, who joined Fox News as a contributor in August, tore into the magazine for the apology in an interview with "Fox and Friends" on Friday.

"They had humor. They were making fun at Hillary Clinton. Of course, any time you poke fun at Hillary Clinton, the leftist machine is going to come after you," Lahren told co-hosts Leland Vittert and Rachel Campos-Duffy.
 
"But why are we apologizing to Hillary Clinton for anything?" the former "Blaze TV" host continued.

“Vanity Fair, which looks like it is on its last legs, is bending over backwards in apologizing for the minor hit they took at Crooked H,” he tweeted to his 45.2 million followers.
 
"Anna Wintour, who was all set to be Amb to Court of St James’s & a big fundraiser for CH, is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!” he added.
